Why Aren’t BMW and Adidas Condemning the Rebel Flag?

Both BMW and Adidas have plants in South Carolina but neither company has shown any interest in asking state legislators to stop flying the Confederate flag* over government buildings.

When these companies decided to take advantage of the cheaper, mostly non-unionized labor there, they made a decision to identify with the state. So why aren’t they speaking up? After all, it’s their state now.

There is a petition to pressure BMW and Adidas to do the right thing, based on the reasonable thought that if major employers called for the flag to be taken down, it probably would be. Take a moment and add your name to the petition.

Here’s a list of all the places you won’t find Confederate flags anymore. Come on BMW and Adidas, if Amazon and Walmart can do it, so can you. Weigh in on the side of what’s right — and way overdue.

*I know some people call it something else but you know what I mean when I call it the Confederate flag.
